Description: The Netherlands Reformed Congregations trace their denominational origin to several U.S. congreagtions in the latter half of the nineteenth century. In the early 1900s several more congregations were organized. After the Second Wolrd War, immigration from the Netherlands gave rise to still more congregations, especially in Canada. Currently a little over half the membership resides in Canada. Their sister denomination in the Netherlands is the Gereformeerde Gemeenten, which were organized in 1907.

Doctrinal standards are the Confession of Faith (1561), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), and the Canons of Dordt (1618-1619). This indicates the denomination is rooted in the Reformation of 1517. The congregations are divided into three Classes, which meet at least one a year. Every two years a Synod is held.
